    It looks more like an SP3 for XP.
    To call it a new OS is over reacting and hype given what has been removed allready imo. I talk about the filesystem etc...

    (I take the liberty to change me opinion when I got it installed and no, im not a betatester)


    I mean, I thought there's going to be some major changes on the way it looks,
    like, from win98 to XP, maybe I was expecting too much.

    It just has a new theme which I have lotsa too.

    The real question is, ofcourse, what's under the hood, how does it behave...


    What do I know, I dont follow up on Longhorn progress, just found these
    screenies and thought folks here like ot take a peek.

    Actually to me that looks really different...
    It is obviously not a theme, because of the transparency effects and what-not...

    Looks bulky though, I think I prefer the themes on deviantart to be honest...

    The transparency is nice.

    It looks a bit you see the stuff behind windows as if you are watching them through frosted glass. And the frames have no colour, either.

    That's nicer than any transparency I've seen with say, the nvidia drivers.

    The first thing I do when I install Windows XP, is to disable all themes etc. and use classic Windows style. I hope this will still be possible in the next version.

    It's not just the theme and effects.
    There are also new fancy things like
    virtual folders (dynamic folder, it searched your whole harddrive for a keyword and displays all files from that keyword that are found as if they were always in that one folder)
    Search your startmenu ()
    Built in RSS
    Desktop search - Search for anything on your computer (emails, files, even on the web) all from one program, and it displays those instantly.

    probly mroe but that's all i heard of so far.
    There are a lot of little thigngs changed, i think it will be a lot different than windows xp.

    Personally im liking the way Longhorn is going. The OS itself is fine, and does what it needs to do, no real need to overhall it, but the visuals on XP although being much better than 98 still leave alot to the imagination.

    what u think was from 98 to ME or NT, they were new OS altho everything looked same, what am trying to say is that new doesnt mean totally diffrent. anyhow i see too much diffrences... folder explorer seems to be changed entirly.
    in longhorn case thier using same xp theme in thier beta stages, it supposed to be changed and yet in early stages there r many diffrence, u can find it out if u try it.
    and next time please try to use thumps not full size image

    So comes the Longhorn, and after that we get SP3.
    Im thinking the looks on both are not really that different.

    Well, im just guessing here, wtf do I know, really.
